The future of sustainable manufacturing was on display last Friday as 20 startups pitched innovations that expanded the perception of what is possible, with eight winning ideas sharing in €160,000 in cash prizes, at the EIT Manufacturing BoostUp! 2022 Grand Final in Athens.
The 20 finalists were chosen as the most promising and potentially impactful from a field of 50+ applicants, with innovations designed to make manufacturing more competitive, efficient and environmentally sustainable. Driving this kind of innovation in European manufacturing is the goal of the BoostUp! organisers, EIT Manufacturing, a Knowledge and Innovation Community within the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), a body of the European Union.
